I have been on a bit of a break from writing on the Fix, but not from reading it. It's not that I have suddenly become shy, but rather that I have taken a try at blogging out in the big ole cyberworld, trying to help the turistas as well as my web site traffic by blogging about things to do in Albuquerque. It has paid off in many ways.
I know that not every neighborhood in Albuquerque has elm trees, but in the Near North Valley and for miles around us, they are everywhere. In the spring these trees present trillions of seeds on their branches before a single leaf bud pops out. With our recent weather pattern - windy, windier and windiest - down they come and the Annual Elm Seed Festival of Albuquerque has begun.
